Maya Lunar New Year Ceremony at the UUCFM

To celebrate the Maya Lunar New Year on March 15, 2022, two Maya Timekeepers led a pre-dawn ceremony around the UUCFM fire circle.  Marta Matías, a GRACE Project director, and Rosa Etelvina Garcia, a lawyer and Maya Spirit Guide from Guatemala, built the sacred altar, honored the Four Corners (East, South, West, North) and Heaven and Earth, and then called in the 20 Maya Energies or Nahuales.  In the Maya Cosmovision, the Lunar Year lasts 260 days and the Solar Year lasts 365 days, and the Nahuales represent all aspects of Life.

Covid Protocol Update

 

The efficacy of vaccines and treatments has significantly reduced Covid’s danger for most of us.  As a result, the protocols for campus events have been revised: 

  1. Masks will continue to be required in the sanctuary during worship services.
  2. Masks are optional for coffee and other functions in Hobart Hall.
  3. In the library, classrooms, and other small spaces, masks are required UNLESS everyone present agrees otherwise.  We’ll continue to be respectful and protective of those of us whose immunity is impaired.
  4. Worship services and UU Dialogues will continue to be available on Zoom.

Although the Covid risk level will continue to fluctuate, I’m sure all of us hope the worst of the pandemic is behind us.  We’ll continue to monitor the risk and change the guidelines as needed to protect our congregation.

Please reach out to me with any questions at UUCFMPresident@UUCFM.org.

Namaste,

Mary Studer

President, Board of Trustees

Board Report for May

 

Hello to all and a reminder that you can always Zoom into our monthly Board meetings if you want to keep an eye on us. And/or, you could read this summary! At our May 10th BOT meeting, we received a report from our Ministerial Search Committee that had us all smiling. We talked about Covid management, and approved an updated Board covenant. We fretted over hurricane insurance, but as always our Treasurer has a solid plan. We discussed how best to address the observations that the Committee for Shared Ministry has forwarded to us. Our new President helped us focus on our foci and goals for the next year, and we are still working on a final Board Manual with a huge assist from the Futures Team. Then we voted on the Volunteer of the Month, and you already saw the results the next day - it's the Tech Team! 

Yours in Growth,

Lane Cook

Secretary

This Day in Unitarian Universalist History

  • This Day in Unitarian Universalist History May 25

    1803 – Ralph Waldo Emerson was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Emerson became the minister of Second Church (Unitarian) in Boston. Not satisfied as a minister, Emerson resigned after three years and moved to Concord, which remained his home for the rest of his life. His first book, Nature, appeared in 1836. He is best known for his essays such as “Self-Reliance,” “The American Scholar,” the “Divinity School Address” at Harvard in 1838, and as a Transcendentalist philosopher.
